Logging value from text file

I have a text file that has a series of values (it's actually weather sensor data). There is a single line in the text file, and that text file is overwritten every minute.

I simply want PRTG to be able to read the (space separated) values from the file and graph them. The file content sensor I investigated appears to only be suitable to find a match - I need more than this obviously.

Any pointers gratefully received.

An example of the file content:

17/08/16 16:26:48 27.8 32 9.6 7.1 2.5 45 0.0 0.0 1007.7 NE 2 mph C mb mm 56.9 -0.4 0.3 31.8 0.0 30.2 31 27.8 +0.9 28.1 15:49 10.3 03:19 10.8 15:01 14.3 15:20 1012.9 00:04 1007.6 16:11 1.9.4 1088 10.1 27.0 28.9 0 0.00 0 54 0.0 18 1 0 NE 7250 ft 25.5 0.0 505 0

You'll have to write a script for that. You'll need to know the units of each value as well, and then create channels accordingly with our custom EXE/Script (advanced) sensor :)
